The story behind

When you enter the place you feel like diving into another era …

Looking from the outside you will have no guess at all because the neighborhood is very ordinary. First you have to pass a gate that leads you through a backyard before you eventually reach a large building. When you enter the place you feel like diving into another world.

The historical building – today known as Cinema Paradiso & Arte – was originally built as a church in 1886. In the 1960ies it was transformed into a cinema. Today it is a unique place of art and culture.

The venue has two floors. From the gallery you can sit and have a nice view on the dancefloor. Antique coaches and sofas invite for relaxing and chatting during the tandas.

How we came up with the idea to organise a tango marathon here and what is so special about it, you can read in our Tango Blog: „Why another Marathon? Why Tango Marathon Paradiso?“
